Recieved from the soon to be defunct Minnesota Air "America" affiliate:
One of our most popular [a relative term, if ever there was one. -ed.] talk show hosts, Ed Schultz, was halted from debuting on Armed Forces Radio last week. Before the show even had a chance, he received a call from Allison Barber, the Pentagon's deputy assistant secretary for internal communications, to say that the deal was off. Barber told the producer of Ed's show that she was calling early to let Schultz know that he was not to start his show on AFR and would be delayed indefinitely.
Ed wondered about the timing of the phone call since it came on the heels of his criticism of Barber for coaching US soldiers in Iraq before a teleconference with President Bush. Schultz's show last week began with audio outtakes of Barber sounding foolish as she rehearsed the troops 'question and answer' session with Bush.
Limbaugh can't be the only voice for over one million soldiers and their families stationed around the world. If you are interested in making a comment about their last minute decision to pull The Ed Schultz Show, please contact ARMED FORCES RADIO NETWORK at 703-428-0619 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to contact your Senator or Representative, please go to either; www.senate.gov or www.house.gov.
If thousands of Air America Minnesota listeners take action, those on the right know we mean business. Don't take this lying down! Show your support by calling the phone number above. Please let us know what they said! Thank you!
Because those brave men and women fighting for our right to be heard deserve to be demoralized by our exercise of that right!
